Two meetings were held with local municipality represents to understand their challenges

As local authorities have a very important role in facilitating the access to all social groups of region, we decided to meet them and listen about the challenges they face in order to identify the gaps and miscommunication issues. Public institutions are closest to citizens, however its local authorities who hold the responsibility of providing needs mainly through the provision of basic services. In order to cooperate in future and plan Eco Hub’s activities they will need to use the opportunities which local municipality can provide by mobilizing local communities. The group members highlighted also the challenges they face, and agreed on the importance of including local governments and other stakeholders in the national dialogue in order to define development strategies.
